Staley Lecture Series
Dr. Gregory Thornbury, President of The King’s College, New York City will be the keynote speaker at Charleston Southern University's the
2014 Staley Distinguished Christian Scholar Lecture Series on Tuesday, March 4. Thornbury will present three lectures in which he explores past
eclipses of the faith, the recent eclipse of Christianity in the United States and
the appropriate response to the current situation from believers in both the church
and academy. The lectures are free and open to all.
Throughout history the Christian faith has experienced seasons of eclipse, times when
its influence and practice have decreased where it once flourished (e.g., North Africa,
Middle East, Europe). With the dawn of the 21st century, Christianity in the United
States has experienced a similar reduction in influence. This present reality has
left believers perplexed as to how the current situation came about and how to respond.
The lectures are free and open to all.
